Umami Burger Oakland will have its soft opening starting today at 11 AM. So get over there right now. Why? Oh, we'll tell you why: the Queso Fundido Burger. In addition to Umami Oakland's regular burger--by now a staple in your burger oeuvre--the new Queso Fundido Burger is made with house-made chile con queso and chorizo fundido sauce.
All restaurants should be required to serve cheese in oozy sauce form. It needs to be the new salsa. Let's make it happen, folks.
Also, while today is the new joint's soft opening, anyone can walk in today and dine at the location. However, since it's a soft open, there will be a limited menu and the Queso Fundido may or may not be available depending on supply/demand.
Today's opening makes the third Bay Area location of the Southern California-based burger restaurant. (According to Mr. Lucchesi, a fourth will land in SoMa soon!)
Umami Burger Oakland: 2100 Franklin (at 21st Street) Oakland; opens daily at 11AM.
